Defund the Police! (Really? What a STUPID Idea!)


Eighty people shot in Chicago over the weekend!

Eighty people shot in Chicago
over the weekend! (16 dead)

EIGHTY people shot in Chicago
over the weekend!!! (SIXTEEN dead!!!)

(Was that big enough?)

Oh, and, sixteen people’s lives prematurely cut short. For what? Serious question: FOR WHAT DID THESE PEOPLE DIE?!? Did these people really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, REALLY… die for nothing? Nothing at all?

Really?

(I repeat because I really, really, really, really want you to think about the question!)

Defund The Police!” It’s a slogan of the so-called Black Lives Matter movement.

One of the saddest words I can think of is: “waste.” When used for a human being, it means to kill that person. It means to stop the count of the days of his life at its current number. It means to stop a thousand different things this person would have done to make the world a better place, and a thousand different things he would have done to make it worse. But, they were things he would have done, based on decisions that he would have made, using his living mind and conscience. Using the freedoms this glorious country has given to him to decide for himself what’s what, and which is which, and why.

All snuffed out by some other bastard. An evil, disgusting bastard who decided that he knows better how to use the million different possibilities in someone else’s life, and that it was okay to eliminate those possibilities and to kill those people. That it was okay to waste all that.

What unspeakable bastards.


From the headline, we have no idea what the racial makeup of the wounded and dead is.

But… See if you can guess.

Black lives matter? Not to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Not to the Black Lives Matter movement, the movement whose very name is a Big Lie by the leadership to its members… and to its supporters, and to everyone in America.

Black lives matter? No, they don’t. At least, not to the Black Lives Matter movement, who are nowhere to be seen or heard when it comes to the SIXTEEN (probably black) PEOPLE WHO DIED VIOLENTLY IN CHICAGO OVER THE PAST WEEKEND.

We have no idea what the ethnic makeup of the dead in Chicago is but, really, we know, don’t we?

Sixteen people who had a thousand things in the works. All stopped dead now. A thousand things touching a million people (if we go by “degrees of separation“) at least a little bit. All stopped dead in their tracks.

Sixteen people, each of whom was doing a thousand things, big and little, important and trivial, and all of whom would, eventually, have affected every last man, woman and child on the face of the earth in some way, big or small.

If, that is, some bastard hadn’t stopped them all… dead in their tracks.

Sixteen people who were each of infinite worth. Sixteen people whose value could not be calculated on all the most powerful, most muscular, most ridiculously awesome of super computers… all networked, all calculating and crunching and quantifying together, and working for a trillion years.

They were black Americans. And their lives DID matter… just not to the movement whose very name is: Black Lives Matter.

Their slogan should be: “Defund The Police! (So we can kill more black people without consequence!)” Or: “Defund The Police! (So we can bring unutterable pain to more black people!)”

  1. Marxist Lesbian Lives Matter !
    Defund the Patriarchy NOW !

    We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.

    We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.

    We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

    We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).
